I spend a lot of time on this blog sharing advice, ideas, lesson plans–everything I can think of that has helped me in my twelve plus years of teaching tech ed to students. My goal is to make teaching tech as affordable–free is best–for all my colleagues because the winners are the students. The more we-all share with each other, the better the students learn the skills required to compete in this tech-intensive world.
I get lots of emails from teachers new to technology about how to get started, what works, what doesn’t work. I answer as much as I can, but sometimes it’s not enough. If you’re one of those, or just need to focus your curriculum better with the new year, this might be what you’re looking for.
To go along with the launch of the updated technology curriculum for K-5, Structured Learning is offering the entire set at a discounted price. Check here for more details. It’s good through July (maybe August–not sure. They don’t tell me much) 2011 and is a great way to prepare for the new school year.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!
